MENOMONEE FALLS, WI (OCTOBER 21, 2011) — Are you the fastest finisher? You can find out at Wacker Neuson's annual trowel challenge competition. Wacker Neuson's World of Concrete booth will once again be a show destination for concrete finishers and spectators. The fourth annual Wacker Neuson Trowel Challenge® competition will take place during the World of Concrete, January 24-27, 2012, Las Vegas. The grand prize, a customized Wacker Neuson CRT 48-35VX
ride-on trowel and a trip for two to the Caribbean will be awarded to the fastest finisher.
Held in Wacker Neuson's outdoor exhibit, (#O31708 silver lot) the ride-on trowel challenge tests the operator's entire range of speed and accuracy skills as the participant maneuvers around an obstacle course that weaves throughout a 2,400 square foot slab. Wacker Neuson's trowel challenge competition has become a real crowd pleaser at the annual World of Concrete show. Every year, over 150 concrete trowel operators participate throughout the qualifying rounds held the first three days of the show. The top 10 finishers, based on their qualifying times, then compete for the fastest finisher award on Thursday afternoon (this year January 26, 2012). Hundreds of WOC spectators gather to see who will be crowned the fastest finisher. All registered World of Concrete contractor attendees are eligible to compete on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The 2011 winner, Stu Angeli, representing Lindsay Lampasona Concrete Building Partners, Norfolk, MA, finished with a two-run combined winning time of 56:246 seconds. The runner up was Jody Knockwood, Power Concrete Finishing, Charlottestown, Prince Edward Island, Canada who finished in 57:356 seconds.
